For information on acceptable use of ASU computing and communications resources, see Academic Affairs Policies and Procedures Manual (ACD 125).
In order to meet ASU's sustainability goals, all equipment must be EPEAT Gold certified as per the ASU's sustainable purchasing policies. You can search for EPEAT certification at http://www.epeat.net/.
Computer and Technology-Related Purchase Workflow
When making a computer and/or technology-related purchase use the following workflow:
- If you have funding, verify your balance with the appropriate person in the Department Financial Team.
- Contact Bruce Matsunaga to get a quote (ASU pricing is often different because of ASU purchasing rules).
Department Computer Policy
In keeping with the university computing standard, the unit will provide tenure-track faculty members with a single computer (desktop or laptop). This change is necessary to begin the process of creating a sustainable, computer replacement schedule. In order to receive a replacement computer, you will be required to turn in all of your ASU computers (desktops and laptops).
In the event that you cease to be employed by the Department of English, you are required to contact Bruce Matsunaga to arrange for the return of your equipment.

Information for New Track-Faculty
Your initial computer purchase will come out of your ASU start-up account. The department will subsequently replace a single computer based on priority and budgetary limitations after your initial computer’s life span (approximately 5 years). Due to the wait for replacement computers due to our budgetary limitations, we recommend purchasing a replacement or supplemental computer at the end of your start-up. Please note that any computer you order must meet the ASU criteria listed under Custom Technology Orders (See the Standard Configurations tab).
